Welcome Message from Host Committee Chairman

The 2018 Lions International Convention Host Committee is working hard to provide attendees an enjoyable and memorable experience in Las Vegas, Nevada.  In addition to experiencing a first-rate convention, attendees can take advantage of the many attractions offered by the Entertainment Capital of the World.  Whether interested in shows, world class cuisine, gaming, or taking local excursions there are plenty of options for everyone.

All convention venues are located at the MGM Grand on the Las Vegas Strip.   Attendees may stay at the MGM or other properties within walking distance of the MGM Convention Center.  RV travelers have special rates at the Oasis RV Resort.  The parade will be held in “Downtown” Las Vegas in the morning to minimize the summer heat.

We are in need of volunteers and invite you to serve by clicking the above link.  Also take a look at commemorative pins and other merchandise you may purchase online through this site.

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!
